Youthful looking hands
Up to 12 months
Applying dermal fillers to the backs of the hands is often recommended to patients who visit The Facebible with concerns over the appearance of ageing hands.
In the same way that the complexion on the face loses volume, so can the skin on the hands. Collagen and elastin will start to diminish from the inner structure of the skin at a rate of around 1 – 1.5% each year. Although this natural process begins when a person is in their 20’s, the loss of volume won’t often be visible until they reach their 30’s or 40’s. This causes the backs of the hands to look bony, with prominent veins – a common concern that gives the hands an aged appearance.
A series of injections are administered to specific places on the backs of the hands during this procedure. The injections are made up of a smooth hyaluronic acid gel that replaces lost volume when it is applied beneath the skin. The high concentration of hyaluronic acid also helps to hydrate the skin, which can in turn boost the production of new collagen.
Each patient has their very own treatment plan put together at their consultation, which is centred around their concerns, their expected result and their general health and well-being.
Dermal fillers can create instant volume to the area it is treating. When they are applied to the backs of the hands they can restore a plump and smooth appearance to the skin. This can eradicate not only a bony appearance, but also crepey skin, as well as reducing the enhanced look of the veins.
The patient should follow the same aftercare advice that is given at other dermal filler treatments, which is to: avoid touching or rubbing the area, avoid exposure to the sun and to avoid a hot bath or shower for 6 hours.
Ageing hands can affect both men and women, when they are in their 30’s or 40’s. Common concerns can include: volume loss, dry / crepey skin, prominent veins and a bony appearance. Dermal fillers can replace the volume that higher levels of collagen once provided, to restore a fuller and more rejuvenated look.
Dermal fillers are FDA approved and The Facebible only uses safe and reputable brands of filler. The well-being of all patients are top priority at the clinic and treatments will not be recommended if it is not in the patient’s best interests.
The skin on the hands is thinner than on other areas of the face and body, and can therefore seem more sensitive. For this reason, dermal fillers to the backs of the hands can cause some minor discomfort on application. The patient can discuss anaesthesia with their practitioner at the consultation, but our clinic always offers the use of a numbing cream.
Minor side effects can be experienced in the hours that follow the procedure, including: swelling, redness and bruising, however this does not usually cause significant downtime. There is the potential for other complications to occur, however these are rare and will be discussed at the consultation.
Most dermal filler procedures achieve their expected results within a single treatment session. In rare cases a top-up is required, but this can be determined when the clinic follows up on your treatment.
